Acres: 4.3 The Bert Maxwell Boat Ramp is located in north Jacksonville, just west of the north end of the Trout River (Interstate 95) Bridge. The facility is named for Albert Maxwell (1910-1961), the Superintendent of Duval County parks and playgrounds, who previously played professional baseball for the Jacksonville Tars, a team established in 1926. This boat ramp provides the best direct access to the lower Trout River. In April 2004 an improvement project added a second boat ramp, floating docks, new restrooms, light poles, landscaping and more. A popular facility, the boat ramp provides the best direct access to the lower Trout River.
